Robert Edwards, Socket's You-Make-The-Difference Winner for February!
It’s difficult to say what Robert’s “official” title is – he’s been referred to as Socket’s Swiss Army Knife, acting as an RMA, our MIS Technician, and a Field Services Technician.
“On a typical day, I could be dispatched to a business customer’s location, or working on broken equipment, or fixing inner office issues,” said Robert. “Every day is different.”
“Robert is always willing to step up for any request given to him by any department, with no questions asked,” said a coworker who nominated him. “He's always willing to stop and help if you need it and he is just an overall great employee.”
Originally from Tallahassee, Florida, Robert spent 12 years in the military before moving to Columbia. It’s hard to miss him when he’s wearing his Florida orange and blue! Although he’s currently attending classes at Columbia College, he still makes time to play basketball with his sons and shoot some pool.
“I like being able to use all of my talents here,” said Robert. “I get to do a little of everything, be a jack-of-all-trades. It’s never boring!”
